The Emergency EED by OHK, a new device for treatment of Hemodynamic Shock and Circulatory Arrest.
The Emergency Extremity Exsanguination Device - EED by OHK - is used to squeeze the blood out of the legs (also arms if needed) and block the reentry of arterial bloodflow into them. This can be done quickly by a single care-giver (Paramedic, Medic, Nurse, Physician) even during transport. The EED is indicated for use in patients who have very low systolic blood pressure (i.e. less than 80 mm Hg) due to Hemodynamic Shock or Circulatory (Cardiac) Arrest.

The information in this website is intended for education in the international market. It should be noted that it is not yet approved by the FDA except as a "Surgical Exsanguination Tourniquet". Information on the regulatory status of the EED in different countries can be found in the Safety page. The Tutorial on the Instructions tab should be reviewed in order to understand the application of the EED and its correct removal. The physiological effects of the use of the EED are presented in the Physiology tab in some details and provide an in-depth understandign of the rationale and basic mechanisms that make it beneficial. Please review the basic study done in normal volunteers and its results. General information on the incorporation of the EED in the treatment of hemodaynamic Shock and in circulatory arrest as an adjunct to CPR are provided in the corresponding tabs. Clinical data including a number of outstanding case reports are provided in the Evidence tab.
